For this week’s “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve surfaced a range of new things we’re sure will sell out, including Outerknown’s first ever kids’ collection, a very ’70s collaboration between Goop and Lacoste, and Mejuri’s launch of adorable pet tags.
Outerknown Kids Collection
Sustainable clothing brand Outerknown, whose women’s jumpsuits are beloved by former Strategist writer Chloe Anello, just launched a kid-size collection that features shrunken versions of its best-selling adult styles — like this small-scale edition of the S.E.A. Suit, which comes in three colors.
Other standout styles from the new collection include cozy blanket shirts and terry-cloth sweats that feel like you’re wearing a beach towel, such as this snuggly green hoodie. Sizes range from 6 to 14.
Back to the Roots Shiitake Mushroom Kit
Back to the Roots’ original pink and pearl oyster mushroom kits have been a favorite Strategist reader gift purchase throughout the pandemic. But oyster mushrooms are far from the only edible fungi you can grow in the comfort of your apartment, garage, or classroom. So we were stoked to discover that the brand has launched a new shiitake mushroom growing kit. Instead of a milk carton–shaped box, these little beauties spawn from an inoculated log. All you have to do is soak the log to start, mist it daily, and get ready to feast on delicious shiitakes in about ten days.
Mack Weldon Women’s Sweats
Loungewear brand Mack Weldon has long been known for performance men’s basics like seamless boxer briefs you can wear with everything from swim trunks to slim-fit chinos and stylish jogger-style sweatpants. But that seems likely to change with the release of its inaugural women’s collection consisting of three iconic styles: a crewneck sweatshirt, pullover hoodie, and pair of tapered sweatpants.
Goop x Lacoste
Whether or not you play tennis, scrolling through the skirts, polos, sweats, and sneakers from Goop’s collaboration with Lacoste will put you in a tennis court kind of mood. This striped polo sweater set isn’t the most practical outfit for November, but it looks so damn good.
Mejuri Pet Tags
Just in time to spoil your canine or feline best friend with holiday gifts, direct-to-consumer fine jewelry brand Mejuri has come out with a handful of exceedingly tasteful pet tags. The collection includes silver- and gold-tone heart, star, and letter tags, all of which can be engraved for no extra charge.
Stoney Clover Lane x Juicy Couture
If you’re already treating your dog to some new jewelry, you might as well go full Y2K and pick up something from the just launched Stoney Clover Lane x Juicy Couture collab, like this velvet backpack for humans that’ll reinforce your Paris Hilton dog-mom vibes.
Solo Stove Firepit Pizza Oven
Le Puzz x Joonbug
This 500-piece puzzle titled “Field Day” is the latest artist collaboration from the vintage design–inspired puzzle brand Le Puzz. The joyful interlocking figures that make up the image come straight from the mind of visual artist, photographer, illustrator, and designer Joonbug. And we think it’s nice enough to frame as soon as you finish putting it together.
Rowing Blazers x ’47
Rowing Blazers’ collaboration with ball cap giant ’47 features wide-wale corduroy versions of five Major League Baseball teams’ logo caps. Both colors of the Mets caps are already sold out, which is why we’re featuring the Yankees here. But wherever your allegiance lies, you’ll have to hurry if you want to snag anything from the collection.
Yeti Yonder Water Bottle
Bearaby Dog Bed
Since not many dogs will appreciate sleeping under a weighted blanket, Bearaby, the maker of some of our favorite blankets, created the next best thing to help calm your pooch. The brand’s new dog bed, the Pupper Pod, is made using its signature Melofoam — a material made from natural rubber tapped directly from trees in Sri Lanka. It features a removable, machine washable cover and a waterproof inner liner to protect the foam from drool and accidents.
Lee x The Brooklyn Circus
Boerum Hill–based clothing brand and boutique Brooklyn Circus has collaborated with Lee to create a line mixing Lee’s Wild West workwear aesthetic and BKC’s collegiate influences. Look for men’s and women’s overalls, varsity jackets, sweatshirts, and trucker jackets full of stunning details that celebrate the influence of Black cowboys on heritage American style.
